Installation Program for President William Robert Parks, president of Iowa State University, 1966

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,026|Likes:
The installation of William Robert Parks took place on Tuesday, March 22, 1966. The date of the installation coincided with Iowa State University’s Founders' Day, and the ceremony, luncheon, and reception were part of Founders' Day celebrations.

The weather was snowy, but it did not keep many people from attending the festivities. A concert was held the day before in which 800 people came to hear the student band and student singers perform. Approximately 3000 people attended the installation ceremony, which was held at the Armory. Following the ceremony, a luncheon for 900 was served in the Memorial Union. A reception for the public occurred after the luncheon, in which official greetings and congratulations from many other universities and colleges were displayed for general viewing.

At the ceremony, greetings were made by the faculty, students, alumni, and the governor, Harold E. Hughes, representing the State of Iowa. President Parks' address, entitled "The Role of Iowa State University in the Scientific Age: Toward a New Humanism" stressed the role of creativity and imagination in the academic pursuits of Iowa State University.

President Parks retired in 1986 and passed away July 13, 2003.

Item from RS 2/11, William Robert Parks Papers, Box 46, Folder 21, University Archives, Iowa State University Library.
